Cobweb Day

cobweb-2016-003In what has now become a tradition, Heage Windmill was once again put to rest  for the winter by the spinning of a spider’s web.

Volunteers turned up to assist in the spinning of the web, working under the instructions of our ‘Queen Spider’ (Lynn Allen).

It’s always amazing to see the strands of cobweb-2016-002knicker elastic grow rapidly and eventually emerge as a complex web, large enough to ensure the mill will be well  protected through the cold winter months.
